Each LS2 helmet is composed of three main elements – the external shell, shock absorbing EPS liner and the accessories, such as comfort linings, visor and ventilation. These elements are carefully constructed by a team of experts, using a tried and tested method of production to create each style and safety feature.
Using carbon fibre for its strength and lightweight attributes, LS2 follows in the footsteps of aeronautical designs as well as the highly competitive world of Formula 1 and Moto GP. Four years of research and considerable investment has resulted in LS2 launching its first Carbon Fibre Helmet with a double visor system.

This ensures that quality and safety remain paramount, protecting riders across the globe. Helmets are also verified to ensure each model meets or exceeds the test standard required by its country of destination.
